How to force report of a new status to the platform?

How can I force the update of a Sensor new value to be sent immediately, instead of waiting a poll from the agent?

Example: I want to send a button pressed event (GPIO status change) as soon as it's detected. For instant detection, I have a InPortListener attached to the correspondent InPort. That works. But on UserGuide, the BooleanSensor part states: "Creation of the custom implementation of BooleanSensor class (only the getValue() method needs to be implemented)". This is for polling. What about asynchronous updates? Is there a way to force a new poll, or notify the Sensor (or some other class) of this new value AND send this new value to the cloud right away?

Thanks!
